I worked as a travel CNA in WI, mainly going to nursing homes and CBRF's. Some of the places are dumps, disgusting and barely staffed for CNA's. Mainly the Atrium of Post Acute Care nursing homes and Brookdale, they were buying out places that were bad already. That only hit rock bottom when these bigger companies from out of state took over.
You make only $12 an hour and $13 on the weekends, which is not enough. They do not reimburse for mileage or gas, which is not smart cause than who wants to travel far?
Recruiters are okay, some will work with you others wont.
The only part I liked about it was knowing that some places I didn't have to come back if I didn't want to.
Traveling to different facilities.
Low pay, no mileage reimbursement, facilities are so under staffed.
